Hi everyone, thought I would share with you, my New Year’s dress. This was my first time working with charmeuse and a more complex sewing pattern involving shirring. I’ve been sewing for five years now, but have put off challenging myself for some time. I decided to break the routine, so to speak, with this dress.
I’ve been looking for something to put in my wardrobe with more detailing and I believe this is it! I love late 30′s fashion because of the details so I was happy I could pull this off. I did run into bumps along the way…and was frustrated with the fabric during the entirety of the completion of this project. But, I am so happy with it now and it was worth every difficulty!
I’m very excited about this dress and how it turned out. It has definitely opened more possibilities, since it involved tackling two things I was concerned about. Here’s to the New Year…and overcoming challenges!
Feel free to head over to my blog, for more pictures and details on this fabulous dress!
